Intramolecular Aldol Condensation Reaction

Intramolecular Aldol Condensation Reaction and Mechanism tutorial video

Intramolecular Aldol condensations happen when a single molecule contains 2 reaction aldehyde/ketone groups. When the alpha carbon of one group attacks the other, the molecule attacks itself forming a ring structure. This video shows you how to identify the correct alpha carbon and carbonyl will complete the most stable ring as well as how to […]
